Eduniversal, a French-based organization specializing in the ranking of national institutions of higher education, held its 15th Annual World Convention in Cairo, Egypt, from October 30 to November 2, 2022. National Sun Yat-sen University’s College of Management received the honor of continuing to be a 4 Palmes League business school. Dean Shu-chuan Jennifer Yeh was present to receive the award. This honor represents that our school is ranked among the top 1000 business schools in the world and has a significant international influence. It was also ranked in the top three business schools in Taiwan.
Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year was Eduniversal’s first in-person annual convention since 2019. The Dean of the College of Management, NSYSU, Shu-chuan Jennifer Yeh, said that only 200 business schools are selected for the 4 Palmes League among the 1000 best business schools in the world (see Note 1), and the continued award of the 4 Palmes is a great recognition of the internationalization of the College.
The Eduniversal’s 1000 Best Business Schools ranking has been conducted annually since 2007 and is designed to present a global map of higher education institutions. Unlike most business school rankings, the Eduniversal rating system features a cross-sectional comparison of schools in nine major regions (see Note 2). Instead of comparing business schools across regions, schools in the same country are ranked among the 1000 Best Business Schools in the world, highlighting the diversity of the higher education sector and the specificity of business schools in the nine regions.
In terms of the selection process, 1,000 business schools are first selected from 154 countries based on the number of students in the higher education system, national spending on education, and the number of academic research institutions in the country. The International Scientific Committee then ranks the business schools in the same region into the different Palmes of Excellence leagues (see Note 3), based on international indicators such as accreditation, international rankings, and membership in international academic organizations. Finally, the ranking within each Palmes category is determined by the Deans’ Vote, the mutual evaluation of the 1000 deans of the business schools.
The College of Management, NSYSU has been promoting internationalization for many years. Many of our professors are from the United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Canada, Singapore, South Korea, Macau and other countries. We have partner schools all over the world, and we have signed dual degree programs and send many of our students abroad for exchange every year. In addition to the university’s resources, the College of Management also offers scholarships for international exchanges and waivers for English exam registration fees to encourage students to learn foreign languages and expand their international horizons abroad.
This year, Eduniversal selected seven schools in Taiwan: National Taiwan University (NTU) with 5 Palmes; National Sun Yat-sen University and National Chengchi University with 4 Palmes; National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Fu Jen Catholic University, and Yang Ming Jiaotong University with 3 Palmes; and National Cheng Kung University with 2 Palmes.
